Christmas Recap

I feel like this month has flown by way too fast! I haven't even had time to sit down and get on the computer. I don't know why it is called Christmas break, because it is so busy and it is definitely not a break. I am definitely going to start Christmas shopping early next year. Jason and I ended up finishing our Christmas shopping on Christmas Eve. How insane is that?
The night before that I decided that Brock, Jaylee, and I were going to sleep out by the Christmas tree. We drank hot chocolate and ate popcorn, m&m's and licorice. We also rented a couple of Christmas movies. Jaylee didn't do too good sleeping that night, but it was a fun time.
We decided to do the 12 days of Christmas for 2 families this year. We had 3 other families that helped us out. I was not wanting to do it at first, but Jason talked me into it. It is kind of time consuming, but the feeling that you get when you give to others is so worth it. I also did the 12 dayts of Christmas for Jason. I found the idea here. I made my own cards out of scrapbook paper and embellished them, with my friend Sady's help. She also did it for her husband as well. I had to come up with some different date ideas, since we don't have access to some of the ones that I found. I will take pictures and post them later. I think Jason seemed to like it.
Christmas day was a day of relaxation. Brock did not wake up until 8:00 am and that was only because I woke him up. We spent most of the day at my parents house. We all had a fantastic day! Now that Christmas is out of the way I can sit down and do some projects. I have started to paint Brock's room, it is turning out so cute!!!

PS I am too lazy to add pictures! Maybe later!



I agree that it has gone by way too fast. Sounds like you guys had a fun time though.


I'm glad you had a good Christmas!

The Payne Family

Fun Christmas. Can't believe you slept under the tree with your kids. Sounds like it would have been a long night ;) Glad you had fun.

Jonathan and Janessa

I'm so glad we're back in touch. I've wondered about you a lot since we moved from Battle Mountain. I'm glad you had a good Christmas. All of your crafty stuff is so cute!
